English | Size: 285 MB
Perched high above the Qadisha valley in northern Lebanon, not far from the Syrian border, is the centuries-old Hamatoura monastery. In an intimate and revealing film Our World follows eighteen Greek Orthodox Christian monks, who make up the community here, as they go about their traditional and almost silent way of life: communal prayer, making cheese, candles, incense and farming. The monks reveal the personal journeys which brought them to the monastery.
